(g) The Board may, in lieu of examination, accept satisfactory evidence of registration or certification as an architect in another state or country, where the requirements for the registration are equal, in the opinion of the Board to the requirements in this State. In such case, the Board may require applicants to furnish satisfactory evidence of knowledge of professional practice.
